Autumn Menu – Raspberry, Coconut + Vanilla Chia Seed Pudding 

As we race through Autumn, we are excited to provide another recipe straight from our Centre Cooks to your table!  

Our centres are focused on providing all the children in our care with healthy and nutritious meals or snacks that have been designed to provide your child with a balanced diet whilst in our care.  

Working closely with one of our many Centre Cooks, Hollie Jones from Aussie Kindies Torquay has provided one of their centre-favourites that the children enjoyed, and you will too! 

A bit about Hollie Jones from Aussie Kindies Torquay 

What made you pursue the role of Centre Cook? 

“When I first had my daughter, I was so uninspired with current kids’ food ideas. I began cooking kid-friendly versions of adult food, and she loved it! It became a passion of mine to create nutritious, nourishing and delicious food that all ages can enjoy.” 

What is your favourite part of your role? 

“I adore working at Aussie Kindies Torquay. The mix of other people here and happy smiling children makes my day so much fun.”
